Color is here!!
Let's talk about blue and green for a sec. I find that most people are usually drawn to one or the other of these 2 colors and I definately lean towards green myself, so I found it unusual that I was asking the paint guy at my local Mitre 10 to mix me up a rich turquoise color a few weeks ago. But who am I to argue with myself?!! Change is always good.
I have some lamp bases that I wanted to paint and after doing one, I loved the color! I thought, 'I've gotta paint something else blue!' I came across an old chair that had chippy white paint, (I know, chippy white paint, why did I want to touch that? It's ok, I have another one!!) that was perfect! I worked out my plan, then out came the sander and away I went.
I really dislike sanding.
Why didn't I just paint the whole thing?! At least I didn't do stripes on this one, although I did seriously consider it, the chair design didn't really lend itself to stripes. Ok, it was just less hassle to not do stripes on this one!
Here it is:
